    Cool, once we get to the 1st i'll stick all our names in the first post & update our mileage as we go
    :)
    It means we can have good days and bad days, long walks/runs and short ones, etc & will be fun if there if a few of us.
    :hugs:

    I have this great app I use called Mapmyrun (also works for walking and other activities), it uses GPS to figure out your distance, pace, calories burned and other stuff. It keeps track of it all on the app as well as you can log on on your computer and check out your stuff as well.

    Welcome pinksarah, pinkemily & wanababy :) :hi:

    Should be fun :)

    On days i can only do 1 mile i'm gonna walk v fast but will try to get in some longer walks to. Depends on work & weather. Could also be done on treadmill, but i'll be outdoors :)

    If anyone wants me to put their start & finish weight up on the first page i'll do that, tho on its own im not sure how good this will be for weightloss - need to be eating healthy too for that, but im hoping i might shift a few pounds.

    I need to stop snacking on junk during the day so hopefully this will motivate me to go for a walk instead and stay away from the cupboards!!

    Are we all ready for tomorrow?

    I have dusted off my phil and teds from the garage (i mean business :haha:) and we are ready to roll. Really hope it doesn't rain tomorrow though. If it is then the dogs can stay at home.
